Venizelos Expects Long Period of Uncertainty for Greece to End

February 21, 2012

Feb. 20 (Bloomberg) -- Greek Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos said his country has delivered on everything needed to be able to get approval today for a second financing package for Greece.

“We expect today to close a long period of uncertainty that has not been to the benefit of either the Greek economy or the euro area as a whole,” Venizelos told reporters in Brussels, according to an e-mailed statement from his office in Athens. “Europe knows that what is of importance now is to send clear messages with decisions that are completed and implemented, with rules which are consistent and don’t change all the time.”
